The state has confirmed a case of Salmonella linked to Honey Smacks cereal.

"You should not eat any Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal in any size package," reads a statement from the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Seventy-three illnesses linked to Honey Smacks have been reported in 31 states.

Health officials recommended throwing out the cereal or returning it to the store for a refund.

If you store cereal in a separate container, make sure you wash it out with warm soapy water.

Kellogg's recalled the Honey Smacks cereal on June 14.

Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most people will recover without issue, but Salmonella can be more serious for the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
